Competition Law360 notes Kelley Drye as part of a legal team in the bauxite case, in an article titled “Suit Alleges Chinese Refractory Bauxite Conspiracy.” The article discusses an amended proposed class action against two China-based defendants that have allegedly engaged in a conspiracy to fix and inflate the price of refractory-grade bauxite sold to a U.S.-based metal refining services company and other purchasers. The amended suit also identifies a number of mineral processing factories and mineral traders as alleged co-conspirators. According to Resco Products Inc.'s lawsuit, defendants Bosai Minerals Group Co. Ltd. and CMP Tianjin Co. Ltd. have established an illegal, ongoing cartel that deliberately targets American consumers. Resco Products Inc. is represented in this case by a legal team that includes Kelley Drye & Warren.
